My husband bought this book for our son when he was 21 months old and we have been reading it to him every night since. The format is easy to read and the stories easy to explain to very young children. We are amazed at how much he has learned from this simple book! He can simply look at the pictures and practically tell us the entire Bible story (he is now almost three). I plan on buying another for our new baby and think it would make an excellent gift to give to any young child.

This is my 5-year-old's son first devotional. After about nine months of reading instructions, he enjoys reading this to himself every night before bed. It's a fairly easy read, but I want him to look forward to reading the Bible, not dread the challenge. He has piped up at family Bible reading times to tell us how his Bible explained things, so it is seeping into his head. The stories are simple, but end with a question (to encourage thinking about it), and are perfect for someone who still needs to sound out some of the words.

Purchased this for my 85 year old father with dementia. It is my second purchase. The first one he wore out! It is such a blessing to walk into the assisted living and see him thumbing through his Bible. He has favorite stories that he reads over and over. Price much better than bookstores

I glanced through this entire book before presenting it as a gift. I believe it to be scripturally accurate. The illustrations are pleasing to the eye and charming.

We haven't gone through the whole Bible yet with our two year old, but so far, we have enjoyed this children's Bible. He particularly enjoys the pictures and the little images of bugs and rainbows and such, which they've included near the page numbers! We have noticed that it shares more than just stories from the Bible as many children's Bibles do...it tries to teach LESSONS from the stories, for example, on the Creation and Fall story, some children's Bibles only focus on Creation and skip the Fall story. This Bible also teaches about the Fall, specifically pointing out that Adam and Eve disobeyed God and that God sent them out of the Garden as part of their punishment. The next story is about Cain and Abel and how one obeyed and the other disobeyed. Following that is the Noah story, teaching how Noah believed and obeyed God.
My 2 wishes so far in this version of the Bible is (1) for the author to connect the stories somehow...for example, to transition from the Cain and Abel story to the Noah story, one could say something to the effect of: "People all over the earth were evil and God decided to destroy mankind with a lot of rain. However, Noah believed God and God was merciful by protecting Noah and his family..." And (2) for each book of the Bible to be given attention. I noticed Leviticus was skipped, which is important to establish the foundation of the concept of sacrificial atonement, the precursor for all to understand the system which God chose to establish, so that Christ substitutionary sacrifice for us would make more sense.
Haven't gotten to the New Testament yet to give an editorial...

Format: Hardcover
My wife bought this book as a way of introducing our 2-year-old daughter to the stories of the Bible. The pictures are very nice, but we have been very disappointed. The stories are given in such an abbreviated form that they are almost meaningless. Plan on having to give a lot of background and explanation. Of course, if you wanted a book that gave only the most cursory information so that you could fill in the details and meaning as you see fit, this book may be of use. As for us, we are putting this book away and getting a different children's Bible. This one is not meeting our needs.

This is a wonderful Bible for a young child. I bought it for my 5 year old granddaughter. It is written so she can understand it and the pictures are beautiful. It has all the Bible stories we read about as adults in child's language.

I highly recommend it for a young child.

The letter font is a great size and good matching illustrations. The book is great and I like the way the bible stories are presented, but I was disappointed in the size. It's a small book and is a bit difficult to read with your baby in your lap and reading the book in front of your baby. The book would be awesome if it was larger and easier to handle with little one.
